Too funny. My mil repeatedly tells me that I don't have enough milk for bf ds (he's 85th percentile?!) and I swear, if she tells me one more time to give him chamomile tea (why do I need to?!)

This is an old wives tale, but my mum was horrified to see me reaching for something up high when I was heavily pregnant, because I would strangle the baby if the cord was wrapped around her neck so what, no pregnant person ever hangs their washing out?! How are there so many babies born and people with clean, dry clothes?

To give dd formula thickened with corn flour as her poor sleeping was obviously caused by hunger. She was 4 weeks old and exclusively bf. Umm, how about no.

I know this isn't what anyone wants to hear but it never stops. I get stupid advice about my adult daughter all the freaking time.
I been told to just make her move to my town. Just make her see the neurosurgeon oh and the best- just go the neurosurgeon appointment without her because they will make a plan for her without her or even her consent. Flipping crazy people. Not only is all that an impossible thing to do, I wouldn't in my wildest dreams, want to force my adult child into anything. She a freaking adult who deserves respect and the right what she does with her own body. I don't have to like it I just have to be there to support her through what ever she chooses.

Whilst grabbing myself food d's who was 6 days old began screaming, I went to pick him up and her advice was to let him scream. Babies need to scream to develop their lungs and voice. I picked him up faster then I was not going to.ignore my newborn.
From 6 months I wàs asked constantly when I'd wean dd as 10 months is good in her books she weaned 2 out of 3 boys at 10 months, She figured me weaning would mean I trusted her for sleepovers lol. Dd weaned at 20 months.
Oh and to top it never believed the issues with dairy that stemmed from me breastfeeding causing her problems if I had milk or ice cream. When we tried dairy based foods directly and she reacted she'd say oh my boys all had.problems like that all kids hate the taste and have to get used to it. She Still believed her words when dd needed an urgent paed appointment after pooing a whole nappy of blood. I'm like mil how does a kid do that just cause they don't like taste , seriously. Still required me getting it written out to put.on the fridge as she did not believe me and continued to provide non allowed foods, when you aren't changing the nappies or listening to.screams at night of pain you can live your world of denial.
